Protruding from the city's skyline, Cathedrale Saint-Pierre captures the eyes of passers-by with its imposing white towers and art deco exterior. A French architect designed the cathedral, which today serves as the seat of the Archdiocese of Rabat, in early 1920s. The interior features a harmonious mixture of Roman Catholic church furnishings, stained-glass windows, religious statues, and traditional Moroccan ornamentation. Mass is held regularly every other day, and if you are lucky, you might catch a performance of an African choir.
